American rapper, Sidney Royel Selby III, better known by his stage name Desiigner, was forced to cut short his performance at a concert in Nairobi over the weekend after his shoes were stolen.
The singer performed at the Jameson Connect concert held at the Water Front Mall in Karen, alongside Sudanese-American rapper Bas and British singer Stefflon Don.
However, when the "Panda" hit maker attempted to crowd-surf, a move where musicians jump into the crowd at the climax of their performance, someone got the opportunity to steal his expensive sneakers.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, the singer pauses his performance to request security men to recover his shoes. There were also attempts to steal his wristwatch.
“This is not cool at all ya’ll, I came all the way from America to sing for you and someone out here is trying to take what he didn’t work for. That is not how we do things,” the rapper says.
This is not the first time celebrities have been robbed in Kenya. Popular dance hall musician Sean Paul and Nigerian singer Davido lost their phones in Kenya in 2004 and 2015
